Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
COVID19 FERPA Community and Student Privacy
Closing schools is just one step to complying with government safety instructions to prevent the spread of this disease. Social distancing, hand washing, sterilizing, and staying in quarantined areas may be painful, but maybe the only activities that can keep families and students safe.
Protecting Students and Teachers in Special Education Classrooms
Many states are now regulating that surveillance cameras be used in special education areas because of the growing need of a non-biased form of communication for the students and staff. When special needs students are involved, if they are being harmed by another student or teacher, they may not have the ability to speak for themselves. In this way, the cameras can speak for them.
FERPA and Student Surveillance Systems
Having a quality video redaction system that many school administrators, teachers, IT personnel and more can be trained to use quickly and easily takes away the pressure from the administration regarding complying with FERPA, maintaining student’s private information, and also keeping their budgets for higher educational priorities.
